Hacking PowerBI - Tips & Tricks for Working with PBI Models

14th November 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from Forecasting with Power BI

PowerBI is a great data modelling tool but it has several key limitations compared to SQL Analysis Services.

What if you want to know how big the model is? Or if you want to re-use DAX calculations somewhere else? Maybe you're fed up of your users having all the control and you want to turn it into an SSAS tabular model?

What if you want to pull out a list of all the dimensional attributes so you can provide a data dictionary, or even to put the data into Azure Data Catalog?

Well you can do all this, by hook or crook, and Simon will show you how.
